Boston Compass Newspaper is an artist-run, multifaceted media collective serving the Greater Boston area since 2010. By focusing on local music, art, activism, and identity, BCN commits itself to making Boston and its surroundings a better place for artists and humanity at large.

BCN’s mission is to put power back in the hands of the people by providing opportunities for self-expression and subversive discourse. As an artist-run, community-based publication, we act as a platform for non-commercial, undervalued artists and organizations, especially BIPOC, ALAANA+ LGTBQIA+ lives. BCN aims to uplift the voices of those often left behind by capitalist ideals and authority, fostering a resilient media landscape that prioritizes people over profit.
A free 8-page arts & culture publication produced monthly by over 60 volunteers and distributed to community spaces and street boxes across Greater Boston. The artists that fill the pages are dedicated to forward-thinking journalistic and creative writing endeavors, and honest self-expression that keeps DIY and zine media alive.
